Congress has been losing valuable
time during the long holidays ad
journment The session is Bhort
enough anyway and not a few Re
presentatives have declared that the
long recess is a serious handicap to
both Houses. As the recess cuts off
eleven of the seventy-eight working
days of the session, it will be seen
that some tall hustling is necessary
between now and next March, if the
plan of work outlined at the begin-
ing is to be carried through. This
session considerable more time has
been occupied than usual in the
reading of the numerous messages
of the President, for in addition to
the regular message, which was un
usually long, these have eonsum-
med not less than three full days in
reading. Then, there has been
much time lost through putting off
until after the holiday recess, the
discussion of several important
measures, so taking things alto
gether, it is safe to predict that this
congress, like the ooe before it. Will
have the usual congestion of busi
ness at the close, when sometimes,
as many as a half a dozen of the
great appropriation bills remain un
acted upon until the very last hour
when nothing but confusion reigns
and when there is liability to grave
error. It will be remembered that
at the close of the first half of the
present Ocugress an appropriation
of three millions of dollars was
made in error through the haste to
nn end. Perhaps the proposal to do
away with the holiday adjournment,
except for a brief Christmas recess,
will strike a responsive chord with
an increased number of members
as well as with the people through

The point of view from which
the writer makes his observations
has much to do with the estimate
placed on great men as wall as great
enterprises. The sketoh of E. H.
Harriman in the current number
of the W orld’s Work, extracts from
which appear on this page, shows
the greatest railroad man the world
ever saw in the role of a self made
man who has fought his way up
from the lowest rung of the ladder.
Mr. Harriman has unquestiona
bly left a wreck-strewn wake behind
him in many of bis sensational cy
clonic movements through Wall
street, but it should not be forgot
ten that the foes who went down
before bis superior genius and spec
ulative skill were all willing to ride
into wealth and power over his
prostrate form if the opportunity
His life work discloses a rather
close adherence to the golden rule of
Dax id Harum to “ do unto others as
they do unto you, and be sure and
do it fust,” but in this he appears
to hoxe been simply adapting him
self to bis environment, Whatever
odium may attach to some of the
operations of this railroad aud
financial genius, there is much in
his career that gives the lie to that
ancient chestnut about the oppor
tunities for a young man in this
country being exhausted. For E.
H. Harriman, the man who today
controls more miles of railroad than
would be needed to circle the earth
and who has more men on his pay
roll and more millions behind him
than any other individual anywhere,
at the age of 18 was suffering all of
the pangs o f poverty that are felt
by the son of a minister whose sal
ary was woefully inadequate for the
needs of the family he was bringing

Fisk, the Vanderbilts J. P. Morgan
and a host of other financial kings
were brilliant figures in the com
mercial and railroad world whon
the poor bat keen young Mr. Har
riman began struggling for a foot
hold in defiance of the admonitoo
that this country no longer offered
opportunities for a poor mao and
perhaps Ihe strsogest feature of
these remarkable conditions, which
have admitted of the growth of
such a financial Colossus, lies in
their possibilities for the future, for
somewhere iu this broud lsnd, strug
gling along and fighting herd for
a bare existence, are the Harrimans
who will take up the scepters which
the money kings < f the present gen
erations will soon lay aside.
The world has paid high tribute
to genius since the beginning of
time, and it will continue to do so
until the end, and there can be no
confusion of genius with other less
valuable traits when the possessors
can work the maricle which have
made the name Harriman famous
throughout the civilized world.—
